Very fun drunken windows. They look so twisted up, it's a great image.
vz-nostalgia: Glad you had some fun looking at them dancing for you, Ms. Jewlya.

Intriguing shot here, this is very well spotted and so sharp captured, mirrors, magical things, we can make whatever we want out of it. Sometimes our visions are screwed up, these mirrored windows will not help to staighten those out, love it.
vz-nostalgia: I pass by this reflection every day on my way to lunch, Ms. Astrid.
Incredibly sharp picture. Great fun
vz-nostalgia: Yep. I have fun looking at it every time I pass it by, Bill.

It only looks drunk or screwed up from the outside and reflected. What interests me more than the outside reflected, is turning around, having a look for myself, and climbing though one of those windows and have a peek at the inside.

If I had a penny for every time I have relied on the screwed up visions of others and been sorely disappointed, I'd be rich. Better to take the time to dig deeper and figure it out for myself.

And VZ, if I ever decided to take up my sword and battle you, please remind me of this picture so I remember what a steady hand you. I might think twice about it--maybe smile
vz-nostalgia: "climbing through one of those windows" to have a pick called trespassing and it's a crime in this country (in any country, I guess). You will be arrested and will be looking at the world through another kind of window, Ms. Kathryn. smile

I like your scheme of becoming rich. Much less effort, than working hard. smile

Battle me? With your sword made out of rose petals? You must be kidding. smile

Disturbing!

Nightmare?
A few too many drinks, making crazy images project onto my eyelids when I lay down?
A nasty person pressing his thumbs into my eyeballs?

No...cheap novelty eyeglasses from the Jokes Shop.
vz-nostalgia: Disturbing nightmare? Well maybe. It lasts for eight years now. Hopefully we all will wake up in November. smile

The windows are dancing and swinging and roaring and I can hear the (modern) music playing and they would like to electrify all the others, come on, move yourself! - but -as we can see on the right side- somebody loves more his law and order! No experiments! I love the photographer's play and movement and his technical experiments, yes, we need the courage to do new experiments- especially in the politics!
vz-nostalgia: Oh, no experiments here on the photographer's side, Ms. Philine. That's the brutal reality. That's the reflection in the glass of a bank next door to my office, and that's the reflection of the reality of this country for the past 8 years. Funny that you mentioned politics. I hope we'll gain our normal vision of the world this fall.
Wonderful kaleidoscope effect. richard
vz-nostalgia: I have a kaleidoscope shop nearby our house. I can spend hours browsing and looking through hundreds of different types.

An intriguing viewpoint. What goes on behind those darkened windows? A multitude of little worlds - the lives of others.

Why does this remind me of something I've seen before, Viktor? (And I'm NOT talking about when I visited you that day!) It's like a déjà vu but I can't put my finger on it. Hmmmm. Maybe it's one of those carnival houses?

Regardless, it's wonderful. How can you not smile trying to figure it out!! smile
vz-nostalgia: ha-ha-ha. You ARE talking about it, Ms. Ginnie. I brought your attention to this reflection, when we passed it by, and I said, I'm going to post it on shutter one day. You forgot all about it, and now it came back to you as deja vu.

Amusing, even while sober smile
vz-nostalgia: You mean even on those rare occasions when you are sober, Martin? smile

Oh yes - this is wonderful!
vz-nostalgia: Fits our crooked vision of the world like a glove, doesn't it, Chris?

Now I'm understanding, you would like to hold a mirror up to..., a distorting mirror, and I know who may be the 'drunken', grotesque faces, the mugs, who have forgotten their belief in human reason, human rights and values, sensitivity, possessed by lust for power...- oh, sorry, a quite other classification (although the general intention of my 'interpretation' is the same) when I'm looking at the pic with these perspective-eyes, but I should never forget to look myself at the mirror before I form an opinion!
vz-nostalgia: Now you're spot on, Ms. Philine. You have a valid point here, advising to look in the mirror, before throwing stones... smile

Amasing reflection, it really is good
vz-nostalgia: My pleasure, Ms. Ellie.
Very creative Viktor. Love the sharpness of the shot here.
vz-nostalgia: I'm sharp as ever, Ms. Scarlet, and that reflects. smile
This is my house after a night out, great image.

Oh my God ... I was dreaming, looking at your sand landscape and now, my old skeletons get out of mu cupboard smile ... Promise, tonight I drink only water ...
vz-nostalgia: Only water? What a boring idea! You know, France, it's a crime for a resident of Bordeaux to drink only water. You won't last a week. Want a bet?

i was mesmerized by this scene walking back from the park just this week and it was just begging to get a picture taken of. glad you did it.
vz-nostalgia: ha-ha-ha. I've been passing this reflection for years, Ms. Lucy. I looked, but didn't see. And then- click, like a light bulb. smile

This is such a crazy, fun reflection. Pin sharp, too. (:o)
vz-nostalgia: Psss...don't tell Petra, Kathryn or Mal, all those blur-folks, that pin sharp images might be good too. smile

After this how can you face the boredom of sober reality across the street...hope you'll continue to spot screwed up visions among the prosaic hours of the day. (Almost forgot to tell you how much I liked your photo: a lot)
vz-nostalgia: Oh Ms. Lina, sometimes the reality in its surreal appearance surpasses the screwed up visions in reflections. I think you'd agree with that. Sometimes I think the reality beats the crap out of Ionesco and Beckett with its absurdity. smile

Oh, please, don't ever forget to tell me that you like my photo. Ever. smile
This is great! the framing is very well balanced and the B&W choice is the right one I think. Congratulations! Laurence
vz-nostalgia: smile, Ms. Laurence. Glad we're in agreement on the composition and my choice of a monochrome.
OOOpss ! Very creative ! I like it !!
vz-nostalgia: Oooops! Zeb is here. smile

A wonderful eye you have. This is so effective in B&W
vz-nostalgia: It's actually not bad in color as well, but I had certain things in mind and the b&w suited fine for that.
